Annan Athletic have been hosting Scotland's first ever amputee football tournament.

The event was organised by local Annan man Brian Murray, who plays for Scotland's only amputee football team, Partick Thistle.

His own team were put to the test by some of the best amputee footballers in the country, who were there representing Everton and Manchester City.

"Two years ago there was absolutely no amputee football in Scotland. We are in the early stages of the sport here, and it's something i'm desperate to try and grow.

Down south they have a great league and a huge interest in the sport. It's something i'd love to develop north of the border and today is really a dream come true for me."

Brian is also an ambassador for limb-loss charity Finding Your Feet, who sponsored the event.

The charity was set up by Corrinne Hutton who was left a quadruple amputee after losing her hands and feet to septicaemia three years ago.

"It's about letting people know that they have a future. Of course nobody wants to be an amputee but it's about making the most of what you've got. Right now we're welcoming people of all ages, male and female, to come and give it a go."
